3.12. Troubleshooting Common Errors

Missing high-speed link pin connections

Check the pin connections to identify high-speed links (tx_p/n and rx_p/n) are missing. When porting an older design to the latest version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, make sure that these connections exist after porting.

Reset Issues:

Ensure that the reset input to the Transceiver Native PHY, Transceiver Reset Controller, and ATX PLL Intel® FPGA IPs is not held active (1'b1). The Transceiver Toolkit highlights in red all the Transceiver Native PHY channels that you are setting up.

Unconnected reconfig_clk

You must connect and drive the reconfig_clk input to the Transceiver Native PHY and ATX PLL Intel® FPGA IPs. Otherwise, the toolkit does not display the transceiver link channel.
